Last week, we announced an exciting new opportunity for both the
association and our member companies to increase their international footprint
by showcasing products and services to the fast-growing Latin American market.
AAIA has entered into a partnership with the Latin Expo Group to host a
pavilion for our members at the Latin Auto Parts Expo in Panama City, Panama,
July 9-11, 2014.
The 2014 Expo will bring together
buyers and exhibitors from throughout Latin America and beyond. Panama is an
ideal trade show destination thanks to its political stability, a free trade
agreement with the U.S. and strategic location as an entry point for entering
automotive aftermarket in Latin America is forecasted to grow more than 30
percent in the next few years and we want our association and our members to be
in a position to benefit from this level of growth. In fact, we are looking
ahead to 2015 when a new state-of-the-art convention center will be completed
to coincide with the centennial anniversary of the opening of the Panama Canal.
We realize that July is just
around the corner, so we are pushing hard to engage our members in the
Expo by offering a 15 percent discount on booth pricing, education sessions,
members-only meeting center and networking events.
